Why I am supporting Cure Cancer Australia

My Story

My name is Geoffrey Whitehorn, I am taking part in Our Fundraisers to raise much needed funds for Cure Cancer Australia. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. I have a rare cancer of the small bowel and was diagnosed in December 2016. This cancer is only 0.3% of all cancers and has no research to allow for accurate treatment. Rare cancers like this make up 40% overall. My mission is to raise important funds to allow research into this rare and deadly disease among others. I'm terminaly ill and would love to leave a legacy of helping future sufferers beat the beast! You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Cure Cancer Australia create the world we want to see. This is Francine here now.... Moving forward now to December2018. My Geofftey sadly lost his battle with small intestinal cancer on August 11th 2018. Our hearts have been truly broken. He was a genuine, caring, kind man. His amazing positivity and generosity of spirit through his 20 month cancer journey has inspired us all to continue his legacy. He had a unique passion for life and loved his family beyond words... just as we love and miss him every single day. He hoped to change the outcomes of rare cancer victims with this page . Encouraging donations to a cause that helps young researchers change the world. RIP my darling....xx

About my cause: Cure Cancer Australia

Cure Cancer Australia is dedicated to funding crucial cancer research from Australia’s brightest emerging minds. We believe early-career researchers who offer new ideas and challenging perspectives are the key to advancing the fight against ALL types of cancer.
The funding landscape for early-career researchers is extremely competitive. Cure Cancer Australia provides the vital early-career funding that our emerging research innovators so desperately need. Without investment in their potentially life-saving research, there won't be a future pipeline for Australian cancer research.
To date, Cure Cancer Australia has invested close to $30 million to support more than 300 scientists and provide close to 500 research grants. Many of our alumni are now amongst the leaders in cancer research both in Australia and around the world.
We won't cure cancer without research and we cannot cure cancer without you. Help us to make this the last generation to die from cancer.
